Eco Value Chain

Hankook Tire & Technology remains fully committed to bringing forth an environment-friendly circulation structure. We continue to make investments and efforts to reduce environmental impacts during product and manufacturing processes as well as the entire process that each product is involved in.

Reduction of GHG emissions

We will establish a specific carbon reduction plan and meticulously implement it in stages to achieve our reduction goals, based on four major initiatives: establishing a low-carbon management system, improving the process energy use efficiency, expanding the use of renewable energy, and introducing renewable energy innovative reduction technologies. In the short term, the aim is to minimize energy use across the tire manufacturing process while laying the groundwork for a long-term energy transition on a continuous review basis in order to discover eco-friendly alternative energy. We will establish a carbon-neutral roadmap suitable for the 2050 value chain which will allow us to develop and implement a number of detailed implementation strategies focused on each area.
